Product Type: Baileys Liqueur
Newest Review: ... the biscuit with mesh but Baileys have not done that and they have made a fake Biscotti taste that is not very nice I don't think. I do no... more
My least favourite version of Bailey's
Member Name: brady58
Advantages: Still has the basic Bailey's taste
Disadvantages: Ruined by the biscotti flavour
I love all the flavours of Bailey's with the exception of the Biscotti one which I find just a bit too sickly for my tastes to be able to enjoy more than one glass at a time.
The Biscotti version still has the same basic taste as normal Bailey's and is a thick and indulgent creamy liqueur but unlike the original version this one doesn't have the same Moorish qualities thanks in large part to the strange taste of the biscotti.
It has a slight almond smell to it and I originally thought that I would enjoy this one as I like the taste of almonds but it has a strange taste that I just couldn't get used to. On top of the almonds and the creamy liqueur it also has an actual biscuit taste which just doesn't seem to go with the Bailey's at all.
I also found this to be too sickly sweet. Normal Bailey's is very sweet but I can still drink and enjoy a few glasses before I have had enough but with this one the cloying sickliness of the biscotti was enough for me after only half a glass which is unusual for me.
I think that the biggest problem for me personally was that usually I love the aftertaste of Bailey's and a lot of the time that is my favourite part of drinking it. The slight burn followed by the indulgent sweetness of the cream is missing with this and it didn't leave just a nice taste in my mouth.
This isn't a horrible drink but compared to the other flavours this one is definitely lacking that special something which makes Bailey's such an indulgent drink to enjoy and be savoured.
I paid around about £17 for a bottle of this and it lasted a lot longer than my usual bottles of Bailey's do as I wasn't as inclined to sit and enjoy a glass as I normally would be. I was even more willing to share this with people whereas with the other Bailey's I am normally greedy and don't like to share.
Although it isn't horrible as such compared to the other versions this one just isn't as nice and it isn't one that I shall be purchasing again.
